president obama is drawing really large, enthusiastic crowds. yesterday in sioux city, iowa, about 10,000 people turned out to hear him speak. they were fired up. they responded with loud applause. when he tried to paint republicans as the party of the past for saying that the republican national convention was basically like watching tv in black and white. on the other hand, alex, he was greeted at the sioux city airport with a huge sign that read, mr. president, we did build this. of course that's a reference to president obama's you didn't build that comment that the romney campaign has seized onto to try to paint the president s a as big government, antibusiness. what it really represents is the electorate is deeply divided in some of these key battleground states that president obama, mitt romney are stumping in in the days leading up to the democratic national convention. and if you talk to political analysts they say what romney did so effectively in his convention speech was to tap into some that have disappointment and to highlight it. so if you talk to surrogates of presiden

machine, and was taking on john mccain. at that point the obama posters were fresh and new, hadn't faded yet. to some degree we're going to be remind the of the 2008. the comparisons will be made. i don't think there's going to be the same excitement in the convention hall for barack obama that there was last time around. people are going to be asking why that is, and it's going to have something to do with the obama record. it's going to have something to do with the way he's conducted his presidency. that's something democrats are going to have to explain. >> 30 seconds. >> the president was not challenged in the primaries. a new president seeking re-election. if he wins, he will be for the second time truly historic. the last time we elected with an employment rate above as it raying raying. it dropped continuously the year before. a plummet raise has not dropped. it's ticked upped in recent months. if president obama winds, it will be because of demographic shifts, his ability to persuade voters. it's better than the alternative. be historic. >> we will see you both in charlotte. c-s

. gerri: one comment about obama's and the voters. >> if you felt that excitement when you voted for barack obama should you feel that way now that he is president? [applause] there is something wrong with the job he has done with the best feeling you had was the day you voted for him. [laughter] [cheers and applause] >> it was not a personal attack where his integrity or character but his job performance. you don't feel so giddy. it is a great line. appealing to the emotional reaction to those who do remember how optimistic they were and now how disappointed they are where we are. gerri: another comment was about obama's performance with the environment. it was all laugh line but not deliver that way. >> obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans. [laughter] and and he'll the planets. my promise is to help you and your family. gerri: that introduction was funny. >> key is not a stand-up comic do not stand on your laugh line. raise your voice that you are clear you are sarcastic some the people were not sure if he was serious. he had a facial expansion but you don't s

a president who would be evaluated, like president obama, can you give me your forethought on obama? >> guest: one thing, and i hope this is not too annoying, if you are a true historian, the idea is that unlike current analyst who wait 30 or 40 years and get the documents that people did not see in real-time and also know how the story turned out so that you could gain ahistorical view -- i was we can do that with health care yet. i think on obama, what was your other question? >> host: bernie is now gone. he wanted to talk about presidential cowardice. >> guest: oh, yes, that's right. in my mind, the worst circle of hell should be for a president of doctors the issues of the most important time. if you're trying to think of an example, i think president buchanan would regret the top of the scale. because for four years he tried to dodge the issue of slavery. he didn't want to get involved. he didn't want to make himself unpopular. the result was that when it really came to a head in 1861, once abraham lincoln had the presidency, the conflict over slavery was four years were violent, four ye
